I will be that person.
In some places, the locals eat all their meals out (for example: Penang, Malaysia) because it is cheaper than cooking at home (cook at home for special occasions). In India you can get a Thali for $.50. No way you could cook that at home for that price.
Again, in some places, if you eat like the locals, eating out is cheap.
